Yes definitely expect them to be lean through this year at least. I'd expect things to be largely the same they were in 2019. Maybe they add one house somewhere that they had already begun working on before the shut down.I expect Entertainment budgets to be lean for a while. I'd advise keeping expectations in check. 🙁
This. I was always impressed by Cut Throat Cove because of how they built that entire new world almost exclusively out of old HOS props. Creativity at its finest. (CTC's biggest problem was just that the pirates weren't scary, but that wasn't the house design's fault.)Developing new houses/attractions does not necessarily mean purchasing a large new amount of props/decorations/effects/costumes. A lot of things from previous attractions can be repurposed. Crates, barrels, cave walls, tents, drapes, metal fences, lights, smoke machines, speakers can all be reformulated to create a new maze. Even if slightly sub-par, in my opinion, would be better than bringing back a maze from 2019.
These are great. I miss Off the Tracks ReviewsOnce again I managed to get the leaked info for 2021 HOS. Don's ask how I do it.
Theme - Unearthed: Gasparich's Revenge - The Glitter Monster returns, sort of. We dug out the remaining items from Howl-O-Screams of yesteryear to bring you the most lackluster bit of nostalgia that no one asked for. 8 years in the making.
1310: Your numbers up - featuring the props from the 10 rooms we could find in storage. Will not feature the Acrophobia room which was the best one.
Dead Line - Stand in line at Pompeii. No actual house or attraction featured.
Haunted Home Depot™ - Formerly known as Root of All Evil. Haunted Home Depot is a registered trademark of Off the Tracks Reviews.
Ports of Skoal - We've combined everyone's favorite pirate experience with our best murderous hillbilly themed house.
Sucked - similar to Bitten, but without the Bram Stoker's Dracula soundtrack and no actual actors.
Celtic Fryer - Watch as Irish dancers are doused in flammable glitter and set on fire. Rotating cast, showtimes may vary. Rated G since there are no slutty nurses.
Monster Stomp - Jack is Back Again - Watch as Jack O'Lantern murders whores while singing some of the most popular songs from 2008-2011.
Night Beats - our original show gets a BDSM makeover in the most public venue of Busch Gardens.
Swashbucklers of the Bahamas - New for 2021 - this 100%, absolutely, completely original show follows the escapades of Jim Titmouse, Phil Spinner and Victoria Goose as they attempt to recover the Grey Diamond pirate ship from the dreaded Captain Mimosa and his crew of ghostly pirates.
